Qualifying Sales Leads: Here’s How To Do It Seamlessly & Effectively
When it comes to lead generation, marketers need to stay on top of their game in finding the most effective ways of identifying quality leads, and to identify quality you need one thing: a qualifying process.
Without measured checkpoints in place, you’re failing to set the bar on the standard of leads pouring into your funnel. If you don’t have a system which makes vetting leads swift and efficient, then sales are wasting time on unfiltered leads – and your funnel is filled with unqualified, low-quality ones as a result.
First Class Quality = Super Fast Sales
Your sales team’s first contact with your leads should never be the first point of qualifying them. As marketers, it’s your job to weed out the non-leads from the word “go”. If you aren’t, then you’re slowing down the speed of conversion, reducing profit made and lessening the overall quality of your marketing pipeline.
From a marketing perspective, it’s your job to find the leads who have the highest intent to buy, so once they arrive at the top of your funnel, they’re ready to be plucked by the well-timed pitch of an on-point product.
In doing that, you’re making the route to sales a streamlined one-way system with a higher guarantee of success.
Buyer Intent Is The Golden Ticket
As soon as the proverbial doors of your funnel is open, the first question is usually “who are our leads?” but what you should be asking is “what leads are our priority?” When you put this at the fore of your planning, your team is then focused – first and foremost – on the leads closest to a sale.
